Residence Hall Staff

Staff members in the residence halls are committed to supporting students in their residential communities. Residents can contact the staff members listed on this page to help them succeed. 

Resident Assistants (RA)

Resident Assistants (RAs) are full-time students who serve a part-time role as peer advisors and educators within our residence hall communities. RAs are trained to assist residents as needed, develop a community atmosphere, host events and maintain a secure environment by addressing policy violations. RAs are assigned to live in each residence hall and work rounds in two rotations: an afterhours and weekend on-call duty rotation and a desk shift rotation. Information sessions are held for the position annually in September. Attendance at an information session is required to access the RA application for the following year.

Complex Coordinators (CC) and Assistant Complex Coordinators (ACC)*

Complex Coordinators (CCs) are professional, full-time, live-in staff who provide overall leadership to our on-campus residential communities. They directly supervise the resident assistants and manage resident engagement within the halls, among other duties.

Assistant Complex Coordinators (ACCs) are part-time, live-in staff and full-time, graduate-level students who help CCs in their supervisory and managerial capacities.

Building Services Staff

Our building services staff is responsible for cleaning the approximately 1.8 million square feet that span across our 14 on-campus residence halls. We employ almost 90 full-time and 15 part-time staff during the academic school year. Our operation centers around a commitment to using sustainable products and processes. We clean with green chemicals and microfiber products where possible, which greatly reduce our water usage.

To request assistance or to report a maintenance concern, please submit a maintenance request (UT EID required). If there is an emergency need, please notify your 24-hour desk.
